Mylo – Zenophile

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s Top Tune comes via Isle of Skye, Scotland bred DJ/record producer Mylo (Myles MacInnes) from his debut 2004 album Destroy Rock & Roll. A mix of twisted house, electroclash and chilled vibes, the album reached #26 on the UK album chart and netted Mylo four Top 20 UK Club tracks and a top 10 U.S. Dance chart hit. The set has drawn comparisons to the work of Daft Punk, Groove Armada and Royksopp.

Growing up on Skye, one of the furthest flung corners of Europe, MacInnes couldn’t be too choosy about his sources of music. “Basically we had Atlantic 252,” he explains. “It was this kind-of soft rock station on long-wave. We all believed it to be transmitted from a boat floating out in the mid-Atlantic.” Continually on tour from club gigs to stints at Coachella and the Isle of Wedge festivals, Mylo is also in demand as a remixer, contributing remixes for artists that include Scissor Sisters, Amy Winehouse, The Killers & Kylie Minogue.

Bob Dylan Sings Cy Coleman

dylan john shearer wide bfb46d4dacac0e52eacd363bd5ef40a5aa013d89 s1500 c85 1024x575 Bob Dylan Sings Cy ColemanHappy Release Day! Columbia Records brings you the latest from Bob Dylan, his first triple album. “Because as Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker and countless others knew, the concise songs of the Songbook era are magical self-renewing energy systems. In the space of just 32 measures, less than a minute, they lay out an idea or narrative, develop it, take it into a different tonality for the new perpective, and return home in a way that makes listeners want to take the ride again” – NPR.

Featuring classics by composers Cy Coleman (“The Best is Yet To Come“), Hoagy Carmichael (“Stardust”), Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather”), Triplicate moves with great reverence and Dylan sings these at close range and at human scale. Read more HERE!

The Life (1997 Original B’way Cast) My Way Or The Highway

(click song title above to listen)

“Chuck Cooper’s every entrance is as frightening as a specter of death. Singing with power and resonance, he’s a villian who can be jointly cheered and booed”. The New York Times

Cy Coleman’s 1997 broadway musical The Life was ten years in the making and in his own words “worth every minute of it”. Aside from all the awards and accolades (Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics’ Circle Awards, Drama League Awards, Grammy nominations and a record breaking 12 Tony nominations), it won the praise of such prominent luminaries in the theatre as Arthur Miller who said, “If Kurt Weill and Bertold Brecht were alive today, this is the musical they would have written”!

The Life is a raw, gritty and moving story of friendship and hope from multi-layered characters and flawless direction by Michael Blakemore OBE. The original production included Tony nominations for featured performers Sam Harris, Lillias White (Featured Actress Winner), Pamela Isaacs, and the powerhouse performer of this week’s tune, Chuck Cooper (Featured Actor Winner).

This year marks the show’s 20th anniversary and the UK premiere with original director Blakemore at the helm begins now! When he was asked in a recent interview about the new cast, “every single person we approached we got – it’s all our first choices. People like Sharon D. Clarke, Cornell S. John, it’s all really proper talent”. Blakemore continues, “It’s an enthralling story, with a plot like an old black-and-white Warner Bros. movie. It’s got this soarinig music, great performances, lots of it is very funny. If you like that kind of tight construction and soaring narrative, with real grit and heart, I think you’ll love it”.

The Life at Southwark Playhouse March 25 – April 29th, don’t miss!

Bobby Hebb – I’ll Be Anything For You

(click song title above to listen)

It was Bobby Hebb‘s personal outpouring of grief over his divorce that’s been said to have fueled the beauty, anguish, and wistful hope displayed on his quietly influential 1970 album, Love Games.

“I’ll Be Anything For You” with an incredible arrangement by James Fleming and Dave Roberts, seeks to close that deal. The Love Games album came four years after Bobby Hebb’s monster 8 million selling single multi-format classic, “Sunny”, and a full two years before similar work by Gamble & Huff & The O’Jays. It would provide the template for the direction R&B would take through the late 70′s and early 80′s, music that one keeps for special moods, private times, and most of all, as David Morpheus points out on the original liner notes, for times perhaps when one is not in love at the moment but should be.
